Get the most from your risk management strategy and team

Cybersource Managed Risk Services combines decades of collective risk management experience with a deep, nuanced understanding of how Decision Manager works and what it's capable of. That means we're ready to help your team:

Accept more good orders and reduce fraud

Our analysts work closely with your team to understand your business operations and refine your risk management strategies, so you can reduce fraud, help maximise the potential acceptance of good orders and provide better payment experiences for your customers. 

Open new channels safely and confidently

Opening a new sales channel, whether it’s selling products through a third-party marketplace or offering in-store pickup for online orders, carries its own set of unique risks. Cybersource Managed Risk Services can help you assess those risks, provide best practice security guidance, and create optimal strategies for new channels.

Understand the fraud landscape as you move into new regions

With a strong presence on six continents, Cybersource Managed Risk Services can help you understand the risk dynamics and streamline the process of entering new markets safely.

Scale up quickly

Support peak shopping season volumes or unusual situations. Managed Risk Services can help you develop effective operational strategies for dealing with unexpected businesses changes and provide the extra screening and review specialists you need to deal with peak holiday periods or unusual situations—without adding more staff.
